    Post Can some one please help me solve??

    I have added an attachment with the problem.

    So I know that I am suppose to substitute P with 150 and L with 110, divide that and then square it.
    2(150) 300
    _____ = ____
    110 110


    and then you square it. But I keep getting 0.36 as the answer.

    Please help

    \left(\frac{2 \times 150}{110}\right)^2 = \left(\frac{300}{110}\right)^2 = \left(\frac{30}{11}\right)^2 = \frac{900}{121} \approx 7.44

    Because that's what it said to do in the problem, and in your explanation of the problem.
